front-end developers create a differentiating user experience for their apps using front-end programming languages like JavaScript, Swift, or Kotlin, popular frameworks like React, React Native, Flutter, or Angular, and tools like integrated development environments (IDEs). They code the presentation layer of apps, access and integrate data through APIs, and build cloud-powered features such as video or chat with real-time and offline capabilities for their web or mobile application. While front-end developers may be experts in building user interfaces, they are typically not cloud experts. Building and connecting cloud functionality into a mobile or web application can be complex and time-consuming, reducing the time front-end teams can use to focus on developing the user experience

AWS Can Help

Help your front-end teams be more productive with development tools and frameworks that reduce the amount of code needed to accomplish common use cases. Leverage frameworks with deep capabilities for the most complicated tasks—such as authentication and data access—and look for advanced features to handle caching, reconnection, data synchronization, and conflict resolution. Select tools that simplify development without sacrificing the flexibility to customize or extend code-based app features. Choosing tools that reduce the cloud learning curve results in quicker setups, faster workflows, and automated security—giving front-end teams the freedom to focus on the problems they’re solving for your customers.3



AWS Amplify

offers tools and services to help front-end developers quickly build web and native mobile apps with a standard AWS-powered backend. Amplify libraries simplify the integration of common use cases, like storing images and video in the cloud, into your app and integrate deeply with popular front-end frameworks, languages, and mobile platforms. The Amplify CLI and Admin UI can help developers quickly create an extensible AWS backend, as needed. Unlike backend-as-a-service offerings, AWS Amplify allows developers to leverage the breadth of AWS services and tools as their apps evolve. Amplify Studio lets you easily build and ship complete web and mobile apps in hours outside of the AWS Console. With Amplify Studio, you can quickly build an app backend, create a rich user interface (UI) React components, and visually bind a UI to the backend in clicks. Without backend expertise, developers can use the visual interface to define a data model, user authentication, and file storage. Developers can also accelerate their front-end UI application development by selecting from dozens of popular React components, such as news feeds, contact forms, e-commerce cards, and primitives (buttons, text fields, alerts), and customize them to fit their style guide. Amplify Studio integrates with Figma, streamlining the designer-developer workflow. Developers can import designer-built Figma prototypes into Amplify Studio as clean React code. AWS Amplify automatically generates the underlying business logic and deployment code so developers can extend apps with custom business logic code in their preferred programming language. Your developers can also use the AWS Amplify Hosting to deploy and host any React, Vue.js, or Next.js web app—including built-in continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) workflows, testing, pull-request previews, and custom domains. By enabling the above benefits, AWS Amplify is helping front-end developers build mobile and web apps faster than ever. By encoding best practices for common scenarios and delivering them opinionatedly, AWS Amplify reduces the overall steps and lines of code required to build full-stack apps on AWS—while providing dev teams with the flexibility to customize apps as business requirements evolve.

AWS AppSync

is a serverless GraphQL and Pub/Sub API service that simplifies the development of modern web and mobile applications. AWS AppSync handles the heavy lifting of securely connecting to data sources like Amazon DynamoDB and AWS Lambda. AWS AppSync offers fully managed GraphQL API and Pub/Sub API setup, administration, auto-scaling, and high availability.AWS AppSync GraphQL APIs simplify application development by providing a single endpoint to securely query or update data from multiple databases, microservices, and APIs. Use GraphQL to power your applications with the right data, from one or more data sources, with a single network request. AWS AppSync securely connects your GraphQL API to data sources like AWS DynamoDB, RDS, OpenSearch, and Lambda. And easily add caches to improve performance, authentication to secure your data, and client-side data stores that keep off-line clients in sync. AWS AppSync Pub/Sub APIs simplify the creation of engaging real-time experiences by automatically publishing data updates to subscribed API clients via serverless WebSockets connections. Publish real-time data updates from any event source to subscribed web, mobile, and IoT clients by extending your GraphQL API to include subscriptions. Or start with a simple Pub/Sub API without GraphQL. Either way, AWS AppSync handles the creation of serverless WebSockets connections, message broadcast, and fan out to up to millions of connected clients. AWS AppSync offers integrations with other AWS services, making securing, monitoring, and troubleshooting APIs easy. These services include: 1. AWS WAF to protect APIs from common web exploits 2. Amazon CloudWatch for managing metrics and logs 3. AWS X-Ray for tracing the behavior of distributed applications 4. AWS CloudTrail for monitoring audit logs in real time7

AWS Lambda

AWS Lambda, a serverless, event-driven computing service, is a great place to start. With AWS Lambda, you only need to write code for the business logic. AWS Lambda is event-oriented, meaning it sits idle until an event is triggered and the system is powered into action. In fact, you can automatically trigger AWS Lambda functions from over 200 AWS services and SaaS apps—without writing a single line of integration code. Once the event is triggered, resources are automatically spun up and down to meet the need of the task—at millisecond speed. There is no need to provision or configure infrastructure, and you pay only for what you use. This means faster time to production at the lowest possible TCO. AWS Lambda offers maximum agility with minimal operations, but sometimes you may find that finely tuning infrastructure adds value to your business. Your teams can continually complement AWS Lambda with container services on AWS, namely Amazon ECS and Amazon EKS.10


Now that you’ve explored our three tips for accelerating the development of modern mobile and web applications, you’re probably anxious to get started. We advise teams to begin with one or more tips to complement their current approach to building modern applications. At last, you can empower your front-end teams with AWS Amplify—reducing the overall steps and lines of code required to construct full-stack apps can help developers launch faster. You can also simplify access to distributed data sources with AWS AppSync—abstracting existing data sources into a unified GraphQL API endpoint provides easier data access to front-end teams to build data-driven features. You can even differentiate your application with real-time data experiences using a simple Pub/Sub API. And AWS helps you operate less infrastructure using services like AWS Lambda. Whichever path you choose, AWS will help you meet the ever-rising bar for user experience and cloud services—allowing your teams to deliver a scalable, high-performance application at low cost. Discover how your organization can quickly and easily build and launch feature-rich mobile and web applications. Or jump right in and get started today with one or more of our tools or services.
